Participating in the PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit

The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit’s objective is to establish a broad-based understanding of how PDF files should be tagged for accessibilty. It’s an opportunity to focus on establishing a common set of examples of accessible PDF content, and identify best-practice when tagging difficult cases.

Modernizing PDF Techniques for Accessibility

The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit will identify best-practices in tagging various cases in PDF documents. Questions to be addressed will likely include: the legal ways to tag a nested list, the correct way to caption multiple images, the appropriate way to organize content within headings.

PDF Day videos from December 2014 are now available!

Screen-shot of PDF Day video playlistLast December a score of PDF experts came together in Washington DC and New York City to discuss PDF technology in a way that makes it approachable for CIOs and others who are interested in what PDF can do for them in terms of business solutions.

PDF Day’s purely educational sessions – the vast majority of the content – were leavened with “5 minutes with a PDF vendor” – a short, snappy introduction to event sponsor’s products and services

Subjects of the sessions cover a wide variety of interests in PDF technology, from accessibility to transactional documents to digital signatures, collaboration, and more.

Educational sessions are now available in the PDF Day in Washington DC and New York City playlist on YouTube. “4 minutes with a vendor” sessions are also available.
